The Leesa company is a reputable mattress company that’s been on the market for a number of years. It’s particularly famous as Leesa sleep was one of the companies that started the idea of buying a mattress online from your home and having it delivered to your door in a conveniently sized box. Since then, the Leesa company has continued to innovate and provide sleepers with new and improved mattresses, rendering them to be one of the most successful companies around.
While the Leesa Mattress has been around for a while, the bed was recently updated to have a comfort layer that’s constructed with LSA 200 foam. Since the most common issues with memory foam are overheating and feeling stuck in the mattress, the Leesa Mattress strives to mitigate these issues with its three different layers that work off each other. These layers not only provide sleepers with the support that they need, but they’ll also help to keep you cool throughout the night. Even with the added support, however, you won’t have to worry about losing that slow sink in comfortable feeling from memory foam. You’ll still get that traditional memory foam to feel that provides sleepers with ultimate contour and comfort.
With its construction, the Leesa model is great for back and stomach sleepers as it provides added support to the lower back, hip, and shoulder region. Those who prefer sleeping on their side, however, may find that the Leesa Mattress does not provide them with sufficient contouring due to it being firmer.
The LSA 200 foam and the support layer also work off each other to keep the bed responsive to pressure and bouncier than regular memory foam mattresses. As the layers work together, you’ll be able to get the perfect balance of soft memory foam, along with the right amount of support from a bouncier bed.
What makes the Original Purple standout from other mattresses, is how it’s pretty much one of the few mattresses in the world that doesn’t have any pressure. The concept might sound odd, but it’s actually pretty simple. Basically, the bed has an intricate grid that’s constructed with a material called hyper-elastic polymer. With the help of this material, the mattress can conform in accordance with the amount of pressure it gets. This unique grid also has spaces to allow air to flow freely, provides added support to the spinal region, reliefs pressure, and is free of allergens.
If you prefer to sleep on your side, however, the Leesa model may not be your first pick since it’s a little firmer and doesn’t provide sinkage that your shoulder and hips require. Since the comfort layer of the mattress is constructed with a material that’s somewhat latex-like, it isn’t very good in absorbing motion and would not be the best choice if you have a sleeper partner.
In terms of cost, the Leesa is slightly more affordable than the Purple Mattress. While it doesn’t quite have the same technology, the Leesa Mattress is certainly a great buy for a wide variety of individuals. It has the ideal balance between soft memory foam and a bouncier firmer mattress. It is also made with durable materials so you can be assured that the Leesa Mattress will be able to provide you with restful sleep for a number of years.
Since the mattress is bouncier than most, it’s also great for sleepers that aren’t keen on memory foam. You also won’t have to worry about feeling hot at night as the air pockets within the hyper-elastic polymer grid will keep you cool.
While the Original Purple bed is a tad more expensive than the Leesa model, it also has a unique technology that’s incorporated into the mattress. You can be assured that you’ll be provided with pressure relief, adequate support, and much-needed comfort every single night.
After the sleep trial, you can also head online to read up on other people’s experiences to see if there are any other problems that they may have encountered with each mattress. If you have any physical aches or pains, do also check-in with a medical professional to see if they have any advice on which mattress would better help to alleviate those issues. Take your time in finding a mattress that’s best able to cater to your own individual needs.
